Fodor's Review

Upon entering Orso ("bear" in Italian), you'll feel, to a certain degree, as though you've stepped out of Anchorage and into a Tuscan villa. Alaskan touches flavor rustic Mediterranean dishes that include traditional pastas, fresh seafood, and locally famous desserts—most notably a delicious molten chocolate cake. Be sure to ask about the daily specials. If you can't get a table at dinner (reservations are advised), you can select from the same menu at the large bar.

Upstairs you'll find a cozier, quieter space. For lighter bites or drinks, consider the restaurant's daily happy hour, which features half-price appetizers and drink specials.
